I have never needed glasses, but last Fall the ringing in my left ear started, and it hasn’t stopped or gotten better. My ENT did two hearing tests on me that showed some high frequency hearing loss in my left ear. I think I’ve developed a bit of ringing in my right ear now, but I’ve yet to re visit an ENT since they weren’t able to do anything for my left..
This is Ridley Scott’s not quite prequel to Alien, the 1979 sci fi classic that made erupting bodies the favourite horror effect of the eighties. Only this time, the eruptions take place in 3 D. Once again, a spaceship is heading off to a distant planet, when trouble starts.
Yet, in a backhanded way the French are perverse enough to treat immigrants in so many ways, as second class citizens. The bigotry in France is legendary. It bespeaks of a people who are devoid of a healthy respect of people who are not native born French.
Or do we not believe in heat? what if the source of the heat touches the body on camera then immediately scratches appear? or will the adage remain. For the skeptic no proof is enough and for the believer none is needed?ok, let’s say demons are real. That means they are very powerful beings, yes?now, if they enter people’s bodies, there would be no room for doubt when you looked at them.
The Venezuelan Bolivarian Revolution has provoked researchers to find new ways of engaging with the emergence of popular organizations and movements who are highly mobilized and seeking new forms of popular power and the deepening of democratic practices both within the country and for the Latin American region. This research project argues that at the core of the Bolivarian Revolution is an urban revolution in which barrio residents play a key role in the transformation of the country. Drawing on the work of Henri Lefebvre, David Harvey, Neil Smith, Doreen Massey, and Edward Soja, among others, it is argued that a spatial analysis of urban social relations, while usually reserved for the study of capital’s role in producing contemporary cities, also allows research to visibilize how popular organizations act as agents in the production and transformation of urban space in their own right.At the center of this study is the Urban Land Committee movement, which by drawing on what Lefebvre has called ‘lived space’ knowledges, has evolved from an organization that primarily sought land titles for barrio inhabitants to a national movement that is currently pursuing the ‘right to the city’, that is, decision making power over urban space.
